A song in the Comedy call'd THE OLD BATCHELER.

Thus to a ripe consen-ting Maid, poor old poor old, repent-ing
Delia said; Would you long preserve your Lover, would you still,
would you still, would you still his Goddess reign; never never let him
all discover, never, never let him, never, never, let him much obtaine;
never, never let him all discover; never, never let him; never,
never let him much obtaine.

Men will admire adore and dye, while wishing, whyle wishing----- at -----
your feet they lye: But admitting their embraces, wakes 'em from, wakes, em
from the golden dreams nothing's new beside our faces, ev'ry
woman, ev'ry womanis the same; nothing's new beside
our faces, ev'ry woman, ev'ry woman is the same.


Mr. H. Purcell.
